buckminster invoke action... Dialog [message #516789] Thu, 25 February 2010 08:17 Go to next message

Hi again,

first of all thanks for the great support. :-) I have again a few
questions / maybe minor feature requests or bugs regarding the the
buckminster invoke action dialog

1. i can specify my the bucky.properties file via "filesystem" or
"workspace".
I select "workspace", however the full path of the filesystem is
inserted ?!
This is confusing. I expected bucky to insert
{workspace}/path/to/my/buck.properties if i chose workspace.
Is this a bug ? Is there really a difference atm between
filesystem/workspace button ?


2. I can not remove invalid entires from the drop down box
(e.g. if i renamed the properties file it stays there for ever...)


3. If I have two projects in my workspace for different targets (think
this should be ok) but the dialog does not pick up the actual (project
dependent) bucky.properties file.
IMO a user expects, if he specified b1.properties in project1 and
b2.properites in project2 that the corresponding properties file is
picked up automatically if he invokes the dialog in project1or2.



kind regards,
Bernhard.

Sounds reasonable to remember it as a workspace path. Please file an
enhancement request.

Same here - please file an enhancement request.

The dialog could certainly be enhanced to suggest properties from the
project on which it was invoked. Feel free to add an enhancement issue.

(Patches are welcome BTW :) )
